Pin It

What do celery and granny panties have in common? Nothing unless you’re the famous pinup artist Art Frahm (1907-1981).  He is best known for his “ladies in distress” pictures involving innocently beautiful young women –usually a happy housewife or gal about town, who finds herself in an embarrassing situation when her panties fall to her ankles at the worst possible moment.

Whether in the process of bowling, walking the dog, changing a tire. or most commonly, carrying groceries, the elastic of her undergarment never seems to work in her favor. These simple wardrobe malfunctions conspire to cause maximum embarrassment to Frahm’s pin-up girls. Blue collar men and groceries with health celery stalks protruding out the top also show up over and over in his work. Adorable puppies and falling coin purses are also Frahm’s trademarks.
